Re: Check Your Chaps

I'd be happy to help my man check for testicular problems.
Not sure about prostate though.

Can't be any worse than last time I went to the doctors. I got in position and I could feel him apply the lubricant, after a few seconds he said it will feel like a thumb being inserted. Shortlty afterwards he said "LOOK!!!! No hands!"

Re: Check Your Chaps

It's something really important. These problems are becoming more and more frequent.

I wouldn't even know how to check my prostrate - it's all a bit of a PITA, if you ask me.

No they're not.

It's just that some prostate cancers are relatively slow growing and develop quite late in life so quite often used to be left as the patient could easily die of old age before the prostate cancer was a problem*

This doesn't mean you shouldn't get things checked though.

*Obviously not all prostate cancers are like this. That's why I wrote 'some'.

They are however, the two most common cancers in men.

Is it actually possible to check one's own prostate?!

Assuming you have one of course!

Re: Check Your Chaps

And also very common in young men.

Our old neighbours lost both their sons in their 20s to testicular cancer which was tragic and nowadays early detection can really make the difference between life or death….

You can be aware of, and check for symptoms of prostate cancer:

The symptoms of growths in the prostate are similar whether they are non cancerous (benign) or cancerous (malignant). The symptoms include
  • Having to rush to the toilet to pass urine
  • Passing urine more often than usual, especially at night
  • Difficulty passing urine, including straining to pass it or stopping and starting
  • A sense of not being able to completely empty the bladder

    Very rarely you may get:

  • Pain when passing urine
  • Blood in the urine or semen

From here

Re: Check Your Chaps

It's a serious subject - but every time this comes up, I have to think of this video:

I agree that I will probably have to have this checked at some point in the next ten years (and a colonoscopy).
